So Hope Will Live  (Part III of IV)

Your gift has given life to me—
a gift of love, born of pain—
joined by science, joined by fate—
a bond that bridges life and death—
a bond of love; a bond of pain—
a sad and strange irony—
a gift of life now given me,
and strangers now a family,
burdens borne with different names.
